Art therapy allows people to highlight and process emotions and express their creativity.
How does Art Therapy help?
The purpose of art therapy is to create personal pictorial expression rather than producing aesthetically accomplished pictures. Whether participated in as part of a group or individually, art psychotherapy is a valuable tool in creating a tangible record of the stages along an individual’s path to change.
What happens in Art Therapy?
Each session a theme is selected based on the individuals needs or the consensus of the group. Individuals then work on their themed artwork in any of a range of media such as painting, drawing or sculpture. The final part of the sessions involves discussion, reflection and sharing with the therapist and or group. No artistic skills are required and members work in our recently refurbished art studio.
